Two Cool Recording Programs

Well, now that I'm using a Windows machine, I started looking for recording software to replace TapeDeck which is a wonderful program for the Mac. I'm not interested in editing etc so wasn't looking for anything complicated. However, I did want something that recorded to mp3 so the files wouldn't be huge and so I didn't have to deal with converting the files later on. Well, I found the perfect free sollution. It's called Step Voice Recorder. Not only is it accessible (including with NVDA) but it allows you to set the kbps (kilobites per second) of the mp3, which lets you choose the quality of the recordings. It goes from 0, lowest quality to 100. I probably won't go above 50 cause the files get big after that but if you don'tind that it's a nice choice. Anyway, the link can be found here. Go to the downloads page and select the "download old free version if you're looking for old freeware."
Btw, for my fellow Mac users, TapeDeck can be found here. Note that it's not freeware (the cost is $25) but it's well worth the price and the tech support is fantastic. Also, he's very interested in helping with accessibility, so if you do get it, let him know that there's another blind or visually-impaired using it.
